We have a winner!

FINALLY, somebody came up with the correct answer to my "Guess" post! Some guy by the name of Nate correctly identified the owl on top of the silo. Way to go, Nate!!! I think you barely edged out a lady who was "Grace-ious" enough to provide you with clues to narrow it down.

Here's a little more distant photo that I thought I was going to have to post as a clue if nobody could come up with the right answer. I think this makes it a little easier to identify what the owl was sitting on. (Click on it to enlarge.) And I took the photos from in front of our garage, using my tripod. I also made a little video of it in an effort to capture the great hooting sounds, but even with the volume turned all the way up, you can barely hear it. Bummer.

I think after all Nate's deep thinking and great detective work, he deserves a prize. Hmmm... how about some scalloped corn... like for supper tomorrow night if/when you come to pick up your daughter? Weather permitting, of course.

Late news flash! Just as I was typing the above paragraph, another contest entry came into my email! Alas... too late. Double alas... his guess of a cat on top of a roof or tarped hay pile was totally wrong. You need to read the comments, Dale! ;-)

Well, that was fun. I'll have to see if I can find some more interesting photos to keep you guessing! Thanks to all (3 of you) who tried!!! (BTW, I made Jess guess via emailed pic before I ever posted it on here. It only took her 3 or 4 guesses. ;-) )

Yea!! Nate. Way to go fella.

My man was pretty sure that did not look like a silo. Looks more like the dome of a famous Russian building.

That was Fun! Let's try more of the "Whatzit" game.
